I just learned today that we lost another shipmate. Stuart (Stu) Hamilton went on his final patrol January 23, 2016. He was the skipper of PT 101, PT 172 and PT 533. The above photo was taken down at the Huckins facility in Jacksonville, Florida in November 1942, just before taking command of PT 101. He rests now in Arlington.

Fair Winds and a Following Sea
Words and Music: Tom Lewis 2006


May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind ever be at your back,
May you find old friends waiting to greet you, there on the outside track.
We're gathered together old times to remember, 'tis but for ourselves we would grieve,
So we'll sing you a chorus and bid you farewell - fair winds and a following sea.

We'll sing of 'The Leaf' and 'The Parting Glass', we'll raise up our voices in song,
No sadness today for the one who has passed, celebrate with a voice glad and strong.
A catch in the throat, a tear in the eye, but no funeral dirge will this be,
We'll roar 'Auld Lang Syne' as a victory song - fair winds and
a following sea.
And those of us left here will miss a true friend, who shared with us good times and bad,
Raising a glass to your memory we'll say: We've known you why should be we sad?
We honour a life that was lived to the full, we honour a spirit, now free.
You'll long be remembered, whenever we say: Fair winds and a following sea!
You'll long be remembered, whenever we say: Fair winds and a following sea!

Thank you for your service Mr. Hamilton, as you go on your last patrol with PT 172, Good Luck!
